The Largest Little Fair Known. Picture coming soon.
An all-silk, vintage haori jacket traditionally worn over a kimono, but terrific over jeans. Superb condition. One size fits most.
These dolls I have designed are a reflection of the Community of Gloucester I have come to know and am part of. They were created with a fondness for my home, its residents and its history. Let me introduce these two to you.
Our Fisherman is dressed in his Aran Isle inspired wool sweater and foul-weather pants made waterproof with beeswax and oil. He has his trawl in a tub with the C hooks ready to be baited. The Schooner Adventure awaits in the rear. He has brought his net home to dry, perhaps in the Fishermen's Field out by Eastern Point, as well as a few fish for his wife to prepare for dinner. The Annisquam Village Players production, Gloucester Story was set in 1905. The fisher wife has her hair up in the style of the day. Her long shirt covers a lace-trimmed petticoat. Her blouse is also stylishly created with puffed sleeves and the collar, modestly buttoned under her chin. Her handwork is nestled in her basket.
22" x 6" x 16"
All of the signs can be easily removed if desired.
These figures are numbers 24 & 25 in a limited series of figures by Suzanne A. Brown of Annisquam.
The Gloucester 400 Committee and the Annisquam Villages Players' production of Gloucester Story have brought to the forefront the daily challenges of fishermen, their families and their vessels.
